Earlier this week, the band announced details of their much anticipated new album, ‘Eternal Forward Motion’, which will be released on May 10th through the band’s new worldwide label Spinefarm Records. ETS also announced a couple of UK headline shows around the album’s release in May; these will take place at the Garage in London on May 10th and at the Classic Grand Lounge in Glasgow on May 11th. These add to an already burgeoning live diary that includes the festivals Groezrock in April plus Hellfest and Jera On Air in June, with even more to come!

Vocalist Justine Jones explains: “‘Eternal Forward Motion’ came after 5 years of perfecting the kind of band we want to be. This is the album that defines who we are as a band and we couldn’t be prouder of it.”

Lyrically, ‘Eternal Forward Motion’ is about a jaded generation struggling to find a purpose and losing daily battles with self-doubt and external influences. 

Jones continues: “When contemplating what the future holds for one’s self, it can be quite daunting thinking about whether you will ever be truly content with your life and the person that you are.  In the fast-paced society we live in, it can cause many people to burn out and chase unobtainable expectations of themselves. We are also now faced with the social media boom leading many people to be plagued by self-comparison and fear of missing out. All these distractions can cause someone to dwell on what they don’t have and take for granted some aspects of life that we should be thankful for each day.”

Formed in 2012, this young five-piece already have two full-length outings to their name, along with a series of EPs / singles; 2015 saw the release of the ‘Greyer Than You Remember’ album, with the award-winning ‘The Warmth Of A Dying Sun’ following two years later – a breakthrough mission statement. In support of their recordings, ETS have performed at a number of UK & European festivals (Download, Graspop, Boomtown, 2000 Trees, With Full Force, ArtcTanGent, Lowlands, etc.), as well as touring with the likes of Code Orange, Stick To Your Guns, Counterparts, Stray From The Path, Milk Teeth, Rolo Tomassi, Jamie Lenman (as main support at Lenmania Festival)& Black Peaks.
